Lebanon’s dynamic capital is not known as 'the Paris of the Middle East’ for nothing, and this vibrant, liberal and often chaotic city on the shores of the Mediterranean has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. Forget its troubled history and get caught up in the whirlwind of experiences on offer.

When to Book Flights to Beirut

The best time to visit Beirut is in the spring, when the weather is warm (around 20°C) but not too humid, the flowers begin to bloom and the city plays host to the Al Bustan and Beirut Spring Festival.

Summers are hot and muggy, but you can always cool off at the beach.

In winter nearby ski resorts open, but Beirut remains relatively mild, with little or no snow. The city comes alive at Christmas.

How to Find the Best Flight Deals to Beirut

When you book with Expedia there are plenty of way to ensure you find a cheap flight to Beirut. The city is a popular destination all year round so planning ahead is essential. Having a little leeway in your itinerary will also help you find a bargain.

The only direct flights from the UK to Lebanon are from London, but using the ‘Nearby airports’ option will show you routes to Beirut from different departure points.

The ‘Show flexible dates’ option reveals the prices on different days of the week and could unlock different connections to Beirut.

To filter results by criteria including duration, number of stops, airline and price use the ‘Show options’ drop down or the buttons on the left of the search results.

How to Get to and Around Beirut

There is no public transport at Beirut–Rafic Hariri International so the only options are to drive or take a taxi or private minibus, unless you’re are prepared to walk around a kilometre to a bus stop.

Once in the city, taxis remain the best option for getting around. Many are shared and you’ll need to agree a price in advance. There are also private buses but there are no real timetables or stops.

Driving in Beirut is not recommended unless you know the city and have nerves of steel.

What Are the Must-sees in Beirut?

The National Museum of Beirut is the city’s major cultural attraction and is home to a wonderful array of archaeological finds that shed light on Beirut’s long and fascinating history.

Pigeon Rocks rise out of the Mediterranean just off the coast. You can visit by boat or admire the formations from the seafront promenade.

For more geological splendour visit Jeita Grotto, a few miles north of the city, and marvel at the cavernous caves complete with giant stalagmites and stalactites. There’s also a cable car that takes you to the cave entrance.

Tips and Tricks for Traveling in Beirut

Perhaps because of its troubled past, Beirut lives very much for the moment, so throw yourself into the nightlife – and in the summer head to one of the city’s outdoor clubs.

Beirut does not exist in isolation of the politics of the region, so stay up to date with current events and be sure to check if any areas of the city are off limits for tourists.
